Plastic forks. Not usually something you spend much time about (I sure don’t). What’s interesting that I’ve noticed is that there are all sorts of them from all over the world that end up in different cups, bowls and boxes of instant noodles. Some fold up to conserve space while others are simply ready to use. Anyways, every time I find a new one in my noodles, you’ll see it here!

This particular fork came out of a Unif Super Bowl instant noodles. It’s a pretty standard fork (smaller than a table sized plastic fork of course) with four lovely tines. Compared to the bowl of noodles it was designed for it’s sure small.

This one came out of a bowl of Lucky Me! Supreme Sotanghon. I would put this in the category of ridiculous, as it is so short and stubby. With its three broad tines I would think that this fork would be used for violently shoveling the noodles into one’s face and then running away. Strange.

Finally we have the ingenious fork that can be found in the MAMA brand bowls and cups as it fits in anything. As you can see, you just unfold it and then you can hear a little ‘snap’ as it locks into place. The lock is actually quite solid too and one could easily eat with this implement. Only three tines like the stubby though.
